    does anyone know how I can find out if a particular drug is available in NZ and is there any problem getting repeat prescriptions from a UK prescribed medecine?

    Hi,

    Dont know how you can find out whether a particular drug is available, short of phoning a chemist here!

    Most problems come from asking for brand names, as some familiar medicines have different brand names here. Best off taking the packet/bottle to the pharmacist or doctor so they can check the ingredients and recommend the subsitute for it once you are here.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    There is a site for names of medications here and their equivalents overseas.

    Not sure what it is though. If you call a pharmacist they can tell you where to go. www.yellowpages.co.nz

    You didn't ask about "drugs" but the most popular (or most in the news) is "P" :icon_wink: .... stay away from it. I think it's speed in the US. Aka Meth.
